Cookie Jigsaw Puzzle- A step by step photo essay.

Hello Everyone!! It’s been too long, again.  One of my New Year’s cookie resolutions was to post more on the blog. I talked about my cookie resolutions, my cookie puzzle process and my real job and family in a really in-depth interview with Julia Usher on Cookie Connection this month.  If you don’t already know more about me than you want to, you should check it out!

I am starting this year’s blog adventure with a post I meant to do months ago.  You know, like before Christmas? It’s a photo essay showing the process from inspiration to completion and beyond of my Christmas jigsaw puzzle for Springbok.  (In a total aside, if you have done the puzzle would you please consider leaving a review on their website?).

The thing I didn’t realize until I put it all together is that in typical Cookie Architect form, I did not get good photos of the ornament and bird cookies while they were in process. That’s because I did most of them in a single sleepless weekend where I barely ate, let alone took photos and that sort of thing.  I do from time to time get to share the whole process, but this time there is that little gap!  Otherwise, lots of never before seen behind the scenes cookies!

I’ll have another blog post very soon- some fun announcements to make about…classes!!  You guys are the best! Leave me a comment and let me know you stopped by. 🙂


Note: these last two photos are from my favorite blogger of all time (yes, including myself!), Catherine Newman of Ben and Birdy.  They love puzzles, and I love them, so I sent them my puzzles. They are even going to tackle my enormous Spring Flowers puzzle!  I am kinda starstuck!

  1. I just loved this so much (that I had to have it delivered to England!). I think as a cookier, rather than a puzzler, I like your pictures so much better than Springbok’s as they’re on a white background which showcases the cookies really well. I love seeing the way you put together your ideas and designs – you put soooo much more effort in than I do! I do an awful lot in my head after I’ve turned the lights out at night, and then I leave a lot to chance when I’m making a set. Which is really nerve wracking! I should be more disciplined!


    1. So… I do all this for the puzzles, but most of my other sets are a half baked sketch and some icing colors. Sometimes I draw them out, like if it is an image that will go across a cookie array, but this is as involved as possible for me, not necessarily the norm!!


  2. Such an amazing interview! Can’t tell you how much I love your talent and kindness! Looking forward to 2016 and what you’ll do next! Best to you always….Christine!
